There was much excitement and anticipation leading up to today’s announcement of the PlayStation 4 by Sony. Knowing this, we decided to give you a chance to be creative and tell us what you think the next logo should look like. The contest opened for entries last Thursday and ended Monday after receiving almost 5000 entries from 1100 designers averaging 1000 entries per day. Wow! We loved watching you create and innovate for this contest.

Some designers chose to stick with the past PlayStation logo styles, some looked toward the future, and many put their own unique touches on their designs. The designs ranged from abstract to modern to playful and everything in between.

We thoroughly enjoyed the amount of participation that we received in this contest. Thank you to everyone who participated — We hope you had as much fun as we did!

Congratulations to NemanjaB. for creating the winning design!

Nemanja’s design is exactly what we were looking for — clean, creative and iconic. We feel the design fits in well with Sony’s past branding but also looks to the future and helps build up the excitement and anticipation of their next generation of game console. We could easily imagine seeing this design as a full-page advertisement in a gaming magazine. Great job, Nemanja, and congratulations on your first win!
